Last year I listed twelve books, chosen to fill out a well-rounded set of genres . This year, I just made a list of the books I want to read, and then found categories to put them in. I intended to stop at twelve, but just couldn't. So here are the thirteen books I plan to read in 2011.
Eat this Book by Eugene Peterson
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
For some reason, I've not yet read this.
Letters to a Diminished Church by Dorothy L. Sayers
Through New Eyes by James Jordan In progress
Gospel and Kingdom by Graeme Goldsworthy Finished
Both books highly recommended by my husband.
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard Finished
This got a mention in Yancey's Soul Survivor, which I read a year ago.
Jeeves in the Offing by P.G. Wodehouse Finished
Because one must always have some Wodehouse at hand.
Three Men on the Bummel by Jerome K. Jerome Began and finished in January
Because my dear sister says this is just as funny as Three Men in a Boat.
Redwall by Brian Jacques Finished
A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken
Untune the Sky by Douglas Wilson Finished
In Xanadu by William Dalrymple Finished
Now that I've read everything else in the house by Dalrymple, it's time to read his account of travelling in the steps of Marco Polo.
The Journey by Peter Kreeft
